I first met Craig when I was on the board for the Wearable Art Show several years ago. His bead work is exquisite. You will search far and wide to find comparable beaded jewellery. Craig’s work is tremendously popular and often times it is sold immediately following a post on his facebook page, occasionally even before he gets a photo of the piece. I must caution you to purchase as soon as you spot & fall in love with one of these pieces because it won’t last long. http://www.facebook.com/designedbycraigewing The Port Credit Art Tour is so glad Craig Ewing is bringing his incredible jewellery to the tour this year.
Craig is a Sheridan College business studies graduate with a life-long passion for the arts. As a boy, paint was the medium he chose to express his creativity. As Craig nurtured his talents his attention turned to textile art which ultimately led him to jewellery design. Combining his inherent artistic talents with his desire to learn and perfect new skills, Craig can be described as a self-taught bead master and jewellery designer.
Craig has been designing one-of-a-kind pieces for over 10 years. He designs with great pride when creating wearable art for everyday wear as well as pieces for special occasions. Craig is known for the stunning pieces he has designed for brides and bridal parties.
His inspiration can be found in fashions from the art deco era of the 1930s to the post-war flare of the 1950s. Craig designs and creates these magical pieces in his home studio. Pearls are strung by traditional methods; natural stones and supple leathers are painstakingly united with the daintiest of hand-stitches; and crystals are accented with the finest beads and finishes available. Most pieces are built one tiny bead at a time.
